Marvelous Monday {# 7}

Hey there! I’ve got to be honest, lately I’ve wanted to blog but we’ve just been so busy enjoying summer, meeting new friends and hanging out with old ones that the time to sit down and write just hasn’t been there. As much as I wish I could be more regular about blogging, I’m ok with it  just being a thing I can do for fun ,whenever I like. My only hope is that you’ll enjoy the snippets of random stuff I jot down here on the bloggy when I do make time for it! If not, I’m okay with that too. 🙂 So cheers to fun randomness and oh yes, another Marvelous Monday!! ❤

This weekend was pretty low key with some cleaning and lots of family time. ❤ (Weekends like this are my favorite!!)

Marvelous to me is…being completely lazy and watching cheap movies from Redbox.

movies(Neither was what we expected but both were equally entertaining.)

Marvelous is…a sweaty, post-workout smile along with a cutie who napped in his room like a big boy!

Marvelous is…playing with this handsome guy, who lately has been making lots of smoothies and even makes the smoothie sound (=his interpretation sound of a blender).

Although I’m a year older today, I’ve gotta say I feel no older than *23*!! That’s *my number*… I’ll forever be *TWENTY-THREE*!! 😉

Hope your Monday is Marvelous too!

Marvelous Monday {MiMM #5}

Today is a MARVELOUS Monday {Thanks to the lovely Katie for hosting!} because…

1. I am DONE with my classes for this semester!! 😀 Hello SUMMER!! AND remember how I was stressing out a several weeks ago about completing & passing my licensure exams?….well I got all of my exam results back and I PASSED ALL THREE OF THEM!! 😀

summer

2. Now that I’m done with classes it feels SO SO GOOD to just RELAX and do whatever I want. 🙂

3. On Saturday I got a little worried over the fact that my little man has been extra picky lately and I can’t get him to eat veggies and any type of meat. He LOVES fruit and cheese but rarely touches meat or veggies.picky Well I sorta got upset and super worried about it and began to really doubt my mommy-abilities. In fact, I felt like a complete failure as a mommy. 😦 But then I saw this sign somewhere online and realized that there will always be challenges we face as parents and no matter how difficult they are, these “obstacles” do NOT define who we are as parents. Half of the time we over-think and over-worry about the little things (which I know I’m completely guilty of) when we really should just acknowledge the positives and continue to persevere because any challenge can be tackled.

4. After a stressful Saturday evening trying to get my {teething} picky eater to eat, we ended up having a marvelous Sunday Funday in D.C. and enjoyed some good eats {YAY!}, which included yummy ICE CREAM!!

5. This morning we had a marvelous breakfast which included lots of yummy VEGGIES!

And after much praise and admiration…somebunny ate all of his eggs AND oats…and afterwards  he DIDN’T even want many blueberries which is usually ALL he ever wants. 😀

Marvelous Monday

Today is not only a *Marvelous Monday* because we had an awesome weekend, but most importantly because it is CHRISTmas Eve! ❤ So I decided to participate in my sweet friend Katie’s MIMM, {for the first time!!}

MIMM

On Friday we hosted GAME NIGHT at our house and it was SUPER FUN! The babies got to play while us adults shared some great laughs while playing Pictionary. We also munched on some PIZZA….and someone else joined in on the fun as well…PIZZA

He totally LOVED it and kept grunting at us to give him more! 🙂

Since we stayed up til 3:30 AM (WHAT!?!…I know!!) We ended up having a LAZY Saturday and took a marvelous 2 hour nap!

We also received our lovely Christmas photos on Saturday and I LOVE THEM ALL! I’m finding it very hard to choice which one(s) to use for our holiday card this year..(YES! I’m behind sending out my cards this year but I couldn’t help it. Better late then never?! ;-))

This weekend I also got in a nice 3 mile run!! A FULL NONSTOP 3 miler!! 😀 I was very proud of myself because I haven’t ran that far in a while, since way before baby. I’m thinking about adding this to my New Year’s resolution so that I can start running again on a more regular basis. (I would love to run a 5 & 10K this upcoming year!)

Sunday I baked more cowboy cookies! Including a new-to-me recipe of Mexican Wedding Cookies that are full of powdery goodness 😉 cookies M

This weekend I also finished another DIY wreath! 😀 I had initially make this one…

wreathI wanted to add a personal touch to one so I decided to make this one:

Though it may not be perfect, and I haven’t finished decorating it, I really like it and think it came our pretty darn cute if I say so myself!

Today we are going to just enjoy this MARVELOUS day with our sweet friends and this adorable little Santa baby…santa baby

Hope your Christmas Eve is MARVELOUS friends!! ❤ Alicia
